No one understands the roller coaster you’ve been on
better than the team at Texas Fertility Center (TFC). The day you
chose to partner with a fertility specialist, you took control of
your health, body and destiny. The journey won’t be easy, but
together we will overcome the obstacles and celebrate each phase
along the path to conception.
We are scientists, but we can’t emphasize enough the importance of
mind-body-spirit care during your treatment. Take advantage of the
resources available to you in the office and on this site. You’ll
find that knowledge and planning bring peace of mind.
Read. Research. But don’t forget to relax and renew -- as a woman
and as a couple. TFC is on your side with the information,
therapeutic strategies and advice that you’ll need now and
throughout our time together.
Start By Becoming Informed
Infertility is a complicated issue, and you and your spouse cannot
expect to know everything from the beginning. Staying informed can
help you maintain some control over the process and help you feel
comfortable making decisions along the way.
As you research treatments and outcomes, it is important to
understand that no two infertility situations are the same. Not
everything you will read or hear will apply to you and your spouse.
Our Texas Fertility Center team is committed to providing the
educational support you’ll need to understand infertility.
Here are the resources that will help during your journey to
conceiving a child, with peace of mind tips throughout.
Build a Personal Library
TFC constantly updates its clinic-based literature so you have the
latest and most comprehensive information about basic infertility
options, as well as more detailed information that can help you to
understand your unique treatment plan.
We’ll supply you with helpful materials at your first clinic visit,
as well as a hardbound binder to organize your information. As your
treatment plan advances, your library will grow. Think of it as an
arsenal. You are arming yourself with information to combat the
obstacles and challenges of infertility.
Tip: Our clinical approach may differ slightly from that of other
fertility clinics. Just as each patient is unique, different clinics
have varying approaches to treatment. Don’t be surprised if what you
have read on the Internet, found in books, or discussed with other
friends doesn’t match up exactly with the TFC plan.
Rely on Your Clinical Staff
Time to time, you will need a little personal one on one to gain a
better understanding of your questions. Ask us! Our caring staff is
happy to answer your questions and help you to understand your
At your first appointment, we partner you with a nurse that will
follow your treatment and help with your care. She will provide you
with a direct phone number and email address so you won’t ever get
lost in voice prompts and generic in-boxes.
Please remember: Your questions may not have simple answers. At
times, your nurse will refer a question directly to your doctor. If
the information you need is complex, your doctor may want to talk to
you and your partner in person at an office visit..
Tip: To optimize your time at an office visit, it can be helpful
to write your questions down in advance.
Ask Your Doctor
It is very important to all of us that you and your spouse
understand your treatment plan. Our goal is to answer your questions
as they arise.
Routine appointments such as sonograms and inseminations are
scheduled for efficiency. We need to make a quick assessment of your
progress, and you want to get on with your day. Please understand
that we can discuss a few questions, but these visits are not
scheduled to allow for lengthy discussions.
Tip: If you’d like to combine this appointment with a
consultation, please call to extend your time with us by an extra 15
minutes. This will allow your doctor to spend additional time with
you. We want to give you the time you need so that you can have your
questions answered to your satisfaction.
Need more time than that? The best option would be to schedule a
separate consultation. Your doctor will sit down with you and your
spouse and help you understand your questions in a relaxed
appointment with no interruptions.
Your questions are important to us. Trying to squeeze too much into
a routine visit does not enable us to meet your needs. Let us give
you the time and attention you deserve!
Training Classes on Injection Techniques
Texas Fertility Center offers injection administration training
classes for patients undergoing cycles that make use of injectable
Group classes meet at 1 pm on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.
These sessions last approximately one hour. To reserve a space for
the training class, please call your nurse.
Tip: Arrange to attend an injection technique class BEFORE the
start of the cycle that will use injectable medication. This allows
you ample time to learn to use the injectable medications. It also
gives us an opportunity to order the injectable medications and
process any insurance information as needed.
We hold a class on the second Wednesday of every month from 6:30pm
to 8:00pm for anyone interested in learning more about infertility
and the process of In Vitro Fertilization (IVF). These classes are
held in the second floor auditorium at North Austin Medical Center,
located at 12221 N. Mopac. These classes are open to patients of
TFC, as well as the general public. Our doctors, nurses and
embryologists are on hand to walk you through the process of IVF and
answer any questions you might have. We do provide light
refreshments at the meeting, so feel free to come directly from
work. Although the orientation is open to all, please RSVP so we
have enough food for all!
The new Texas Fertility Center website offers expanded information
on infertility therapy, with printable guides to help you along your
If you find that our site hasn’t covered an issue important to you,
please email us . We really do
appreciate your feedback. If you have a question that we have not
addressed, odds are that others would like the answer as well.
Industry and Educational Websites
Texas Fertility Center works with many great partners, and each
brings helpful emotional and medically relevant information to
patients. We have included a list of fertility links to help you
understand and cope with infertility.
Other Internet Sites
We recommend that you avoid Internet chat rooms and social media
sites. These sites contain conflicting information and are often not
written by medical professionals. Although the intent is good, the
information is often misleading -- and in some instances, wrong.
Infertility treatment is not the same for everyone. When you read
about other patients’ experiences -- especially on the Internet --
their situations and treatments may be very different from yours.

of you and your partner..
Tip: There’s a reason for websites like Snopes. Rely on TFC to
provide a medically sound course of action, and don’t believe
everything you read on the Internet.
